That’s right, our newest McCall’s Quilting contest, Quilt Design Star™ is off and running. We want to encourage you to participate! Just click on the Quilt Design Star™ link at right, under “Contests”.
There are 2 parts to this contest.
The first part is the finalist selection. We invite anybody who has ever designed an original quilt project, including pieceing, appliqué, folk art, or art quilting to enter a project that they’ve designed. The entry period is now through June 24, 2010. Starting July 1, 2010, the public will vote on the entries to decide who might be selected as a finalist.
The second part of the contest is the challenge portion. Each of the finalists will be asked to perform up to 3 challenges. After each challenge, the public will vote and finalists may be eliminated.
The winner of the 3rd (Grand Finale) challenge will receive a BERNINA aurora 440QE sewing machine!
We are very excited to see your entries. To thank you for participating in the first (finalist selection) portion of the contest, every entrant will be sent a link to download McCall’s Quilting Quilt Designers’ Easy Patterning Guide. This one-page cheat sheet is a must have for quilters. It includes information on Mattresses & Batting and common pre-cut shapes, among others!
So, enter to become a finalist and participate in our challenges!
